Plextor uses the new Marvell 9287 controller, new Toshiba 19nm Toggle Mode Flash and gives us a new understanding of what it means to be fast.

HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

Benchmark: measures the performance

Info: shows detailed information

Health: checks the health status by using SMART

Error Scan: scans the surface for errors

Temperature display

 

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

In the charts today we included all four of the latest Plextor drives since the M3 and M3 Pro are still considered newer products that haven't even been on the market for a full six months. In the QD1 sequential read across the drive we finally see Plextor taking aim at the SandForce drives, it's so close.

When writing data the new M5 Pro beats out the other 2012 Plextor products, but is a little slower than Team SandForce and nearly 80MB/s slower on average than the Vertex 4.
